I've read things which make me feel a bit worried. First of all, I do believe that those who accepted the challenge of being a teacher must read and study a lot about methodology and the like. What makes a difference between a teacher and another is the understanding of learning process, and this comprehension does not come easily. You need to work hard, study a lot, observe your classes trying to set your prejudice and some harmful beliefs aside.
I personally do not trust in teacher training programs offered by those courses that hire teachers and doctrinate them in methods. I believe that teachers should research and learn the criticisms that methodologies have so as to be able to make the best decisions on how to work in classroom.
I have a comment - if you see a material full of mistakes and exercises that do not help students' learning, and for that reason the teacher sees the need of changing a lot and fill in many gaps, so the problem is in this methodology. Communicative Language Program has its falts, like Task-Based Learning too, but they somehow let you work better because they give students opportunity to experience language by themselves, and not only just repeating something. Learner has an important role in those methodology, which is not the case of Wizard methodology, too much teacher-centered.
